Our judging panel will be looking out for films which are the most creative, inspiring and have a clear message. The three selected finalists from both the primary and secondary age category will be invited to a private screening at London’s BFI where they will be presented great prizes for their school or youth organisation to award their creative achievements!
In March 2016, Childnet International will be launching their Cyberbullying Guidance and Teaching Resources, which will help schools understand, prevent and respond to cyberbullying.
Created in conjunction with the Government Equalities Office and the European Commission the Teaching Resources will provide educators with a toolkit to use with KS3 students as part of the PSHE curriculum to educate about safe and responsible online conduct.
The toolkit has been designed to offer a practical approach to teach key online issues such as cyberbullying, sexting, peer pressure and body image. A key component of this is three short films. These films aim to generate discussions amongst pupils as to where behaviour ‘crosses the line’ between what is acceptable and unacceptable.
Childnet is delighted to announce that their annual film competition is now open to pupils aged 7-18!
Once again Childnet would like to invite all primary and secondary schools as well as youth organisations across the UK to enter their challenge to create a short film about internet safety. As always the films should showcase the positive and inspiring use of the internet, as this still remains at the heart of Childnet’s Film Competition 2015.
However, this year they have added a bit of a twist and have teamed up with PhoneBrain, a great organisation who aims to educate users about premium rate services. Teaming up with PhoneBrain has allowed Childnet to stretch and challenge the 11+ category even further. So, for the first time ever there will be 2 projects to choose from in the secondary age category (ages 11 to 18)!
The judging panel will be looking out for films which are the most creative, are closest to the theme and have a clear message. These film-makers will be invited to a private screening at London’s BFI where they will be awarded great prizes for their creative achievements!
